    I gave away my freedom.

    An old friend once told me that fear was a necessary part of life. I disagreed. Still, he argued that fear could be a useful tool, a drive or something of the sort. At the time, I knew I didn’t share his views but I didn't really know the reason why. So, when he insisted and I couldn’t come up with a rebuttal I was thoroughly convinced about, I basically gave in and let it go.

    My Vocal

    My Vocal

    Hi,I’m Shania. Let me start by saying I’m very excited to start sharing some of my stories with all of you. I heard about Vocal through Facebook and I thought I would be a great Opportunity for me to share some of my posts,interests,likes and dislikes and maybe some “feeling of the day” kind of stories/posts. My background? I am very photogenic,I love to be out and about everyday, and I am COMPLETELY in love with entertainment. Singing,dancing,acting. Anything that’ll make me feel free, and make me feel like I can let go for just a moment. I love theatre,especially musicals and broadway. I mostly love to sing,though. Music has always been my most favorite passion. It’s like the love of my life. I started singing when I was 3 years old and I haven’t stopped since then. I’ve always felt this strong, and amazing connection with music. I guess I could say music and I hit it off the bat the moment we met. Every genre, every instrument, every lyric,every word, every song, they all made me feel like I was in different places and I felt like a different person everytime. I would feel like a cowgirl, a burlesque dancer,a gypsy dancer, the belle of the ball,a soul train dancer. Anything I listen to makes me feel like any type of dancer. Of course there are songs I don’t like,but I just really enjoy music and listening to different songs every once in a while (we all get tired of the same old same old sometimes,let’s be honest). Yes,I’ve had haters,but that didn’t stop me not one bit. And I’m not gonna stop even if the hate came harder. Because,when you have ambition and strong love for something, that conquers all.And I want to be able to express that with you all through My Vocal. Other interesting facts about moi? My favorite color is blue, favorite food is pasta. Favorite hobbies? Well,besides entertainment,swimming,tennis, and writing poetry and stories. Having Creativity with a creative mind is awesome,even when all you need is a pen and some paper. Or music and a microphone. I think it’s great to embrace your own creativity. Nobody should have to hide it. I mean,forget what others say,right? Your talent is your talent. Be proud of it. Be grateful for it. When I heard about Vocal,I thought it was interesting for me. I mean,I have Facebook and Instagram and,sure you can express yourself on them too,but I just thought this was something more exciting for me to try. To be able to express my true self on different type of social media. Thing I learned in life is to always be yourself and to let no one take that away from you or make you feel like you have to put them above yourself and love yourself for who you are. Your talent(s),who you are as person,even before your first relationship with someone,wherever you go and whatever you do,REMAIN YOU,BOO!! Nobody can change who you are,not even if you’re gay,straight,bi,transgendered,black,white,brown,red,yellow. Be who you are. No one can control that or take that away from you. You are beautiful. You are strong. Your heart is pure gold. Your soul is a precious diamond. You are the sailor of the sea. You see the dream, you want that dream, you make that dream come true. Like Jessie J said “Sometimes it hard to follow your heart. Tears don’t mean your losing,everybody’s bruising. Just be true to who you are”. Let no one tell you “you can’t”, “you won’t”, or “you’re worthless”. There are gonna be haterade drinkers out there in the world,but the lovers and the love you have for the passion and the goal(s) you want are always going to outweigh them. Which is what I choose to express to you all in this first story. As you see at the top is a video. It’s an intro to my YouTube channel,which I’ve had for a year now and an awesome success so far. ☺️Nothing major,but just something I love doing. I do hope you all enjoy. For more and to subscribe to my channel,just hit this link (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1WPyLGmR7YLgcKHf_Tipw?sub_confirmation=1). ☺️☺️

    Happiness in the Moment

    Happiness in the Moment

    Before, it was a word only heard in science fiction movies when the world was taken over by walking zombies or black-eyed aliens looking to conquer earth. Now, it has become a staple in every person’s vocabulary; a word that first started as a joke, but now has hit everyone harder than expected.

    The Little Things

    The Little Things

    This feeling deep inside that I cannot hide. I try so hard to change what it means in order to make things ok but it doesn’t do it’s job. I’ve spent too long searching for peace only to question my feelings. I walk along this path alone without the answer that I seek. A simple yes or no doesn’t validate what’s at stake.

    The Way People Respond in Crisis Matters

    The Way People Respond in Crisis Matters

    Everyone is different from another, so their behaviour, moods, priorities and reasons can differ also. In a particular situation, people behave differently because they take this situation according to their thinking style, resolving capability, level of positivity or negativity, experiences, backgrounds and prevailed patterns in their society. It is a rare chance that person can match with another person. For instance, in means of cognition, strengths, weaknesses and abilities. Like, some people behave panic while having troubles, but another can face it calmly and focus on finding ways. Similarly, some are willing to have immediate solutions, but others can be interested in long term solutions. Additionally, some like to resolve the issue in groups, but others can be interested in finding a solution independently. These things vary according to their nature and trust level as well. Here, in this paper, we will discuss how different people behave differently in the same situations. Similarly, Dissertation writing service provider explains diversified strategies to handle conflicts in complex cases.

    Self Improvement Journals: Focusing on your goals

    We all have goals in mind, whether that be long term goals or short. Most of the time the only thing stopping us from pursuing them is fear. Fear of rejection, fear of not being good enough, fear of failure. In honesty this post is my own journal, a positive one. Hopefully, this journal will help with a little self motivation.

    Why you should start a YouTube channel!

    Why you should start a YouTube channel!

    Lock down and being furloughed from my work has gotten me a bit bored to say the least. I am enjoying being off work and can have a lie in to watch endless amounts of movies. However, I feel as though I have watched and rewatched every movie and show Netflix and Amazon Prime has to offer me. I even got the Disney plus free week trial to have a nice week of animations and fairy tales, which I did thoroughly enjoy. It has now been nearly two months of constant TV shows and movies that I now feel as though I have no concentration left to really enjoy my favourite shows. To combat my lock down boredom and bring back my concentration, I have even taken up answering paid online surveys online.

    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    One thing that has helped me with this lockdown as tick-tock I tried the Post helpful videos about people with disabilities and maybe some General Life hacks along the way. I feel better because I am putting it out positive energy, as well as giving myself a project. I do have a YouTube channel called Yvonne Knight. However, those videos are a little more involved because of the editing process. Tick tock already has special effects and editing features built into the app. The features are pretty straightforward, even if you have no editing experience once so ever. I feel like making videos is its more comfortable way to express myself. Sometimes making videos is more relaxed than writing an article. YouTube, in particular, I can decide how long the video is going to be and how extensive the video edited Will be. When you write an article, you are writing to fit somebody else’s criteria. I like that YouTube and tick-tock give me more creative control over my work. I think in these times of separation, we need to find a creative outlet to express ourselves outward. We need to feel we are connecting to one another in some way, even though some of us cannot be with the one we physically want to be near.. If you are going to put forth a video on either platform, please consider doing a positive video, because there is too much negativity in the world right now. Please remember it takes a lot of courage to turn on the camera and pour out your creativity to the world. Some people Will is not tick-tock beautiful, but then again, the persons that are calling them ugly do not look much better than they do.

We all face a different a different kind of fear such as: What if I fail?, What will people I know think, What will people I don't know think, or What if I think I have what it takes and it's just not enough?
